Description
A witty set of comparisons that places ancient dinosaurs side by side with modern-day objects.Dinosaurs were gigantic beasts that walked on Earth long before humans appeared. Everybody knows the dinosaurs were BIG, but how big is BIG? As big as a fire engine? As small as a chicken?Patrick O'Brien's marvelous illustrations place dinosaurs side by side with modern-day animals, vehicles, and people so that children can easily grasp how the dinosaurs would stack up if they were around today.
